Santiago-based interior designers and architects 57Studio have completed the Kubler House project. The luxury single unity property can be found in a residential park in Colina, northern Santiago, Chile. Colina in Spanish means ‘hill’.

According to the architects: “The sites – about 5000 sqm each and mostly surrounded by golf fields and green areas – have the constant presence of the Andes, high temperatures during the summer time and winds from the south.

The project seeks to incorporate the landscape in the household daily life, following the client’s request who wanted to spend a long time throughout the year in the exterior spaces.

“The site has a park on the north side, a street on the west side and another one southwards, where the main access is located. The contemporary Chilean house is placed towards the corner of the two streets with the intention of freeing the garden, creating continuity with the park and clearing the views towards the east mountain range.

“All the interior spaces are organised around an 8 x 8 m central patio that takes in part of the terrain, incorporating it inside the contemporary house. Delimited by the ceiling slab, this patio opens its north face to project the view towards the garden.

A water mirror runs across a third of its surface reinforcing this perspective through a porch. The public areas constantly participate of the patio, from the main access to the family room, articulating the service areas towards the west.

On the east side, a double-height wall lightly closes the private area without losing its participation of the patio and accompanies the ascension to the master bedroom.

From there, it is possible to go out into a vast porch that dominates the landscape, where the barbecue area and the swimming pool are placed at a certain distance using the site in all of its extension.

“Some peripheral walls are prolonged to direct the views and close the contemporary house against the winds and nearby streets.

In addition, the slabs extend as eaves to protect tall windows from the sun and to cover the terraces. These architectonic elements radicalise the opening of the interior spaces, deepening their presence from the outside.”

The Difference Between Getting Over Your Ex And Just Getting Used To Being Alone

Too often, small words become big goodbyes. With the utterance of the simple phrase, “We’re done,” a grand love story becomes victim to the passing of time, and eventually reduces to a surface-level adjective or two that will never encompass everything that happened during the course of a relationship. Experiences are boiled down to a […]

Lawyer Freaks Out Over Penis-Shaped Image On Candy Bar (Photo)

A lawyer freaked out recently when he saw a “massive cock” on a Nestlé Milkybar after he took a bite during a World Cup game. The penis is actually an upside down horse head, but that didn’t stop Robin Jacobs, 31, from being “a little put off” by the phallic-looking image and wondering “what on earth” it was […]

This College Application From 1922 Shows The Process Has Always Been Crazy (Photo)

If you thought the college application process was absurd now, check out this college application from 1922, which asks questions like “Is your health good?” and if you’d like to study “domestic science,” whatever that means. This single-paged, no-essay application, albeit with slightly invasive questions, makes me wish I could go back in time and study at Elon. […]

Hoping That HBO’s ‘The Leftovers’ Doesn’t Live Up To Its Name

HBO premiered its next big drama last night, “The Leftovers,” a sci-fi, metaphysical mystery show created by Tom Perrotta (author of the novel of the same name) and Damon Lindelof of the ”Lost.” Like “Lost” and many other Lindelof television creations, the show centers on one very high-concept conceit. In this case, the conceit is that […]
